I purchased this novel because one of the reviewers indicated that readers who liked Moning`s Highlander time travel series would enjoy this book. I have rarely been so disappointed. If you haven`t read any of Moning`s books start there. I am stunned at the comparison.
There was nothing believable about the set-up of this plot. We have Bree racing through a dark graveyard alone in the middle of the night. (Keep in mind that she has lived beside this graveyard all her life. There is no explanation about why tonight was so urgent.) Surprisingly, that night, a burial vault lays open -- something that compares to the splendor of Solomon`s Temple. Ha! Bree has a map that for some reason she has never shown anyone and waits for this big adventure when her best friend is out of town. We are told that Bree is an expert, because she authenticated an artifact for a prince last year. GAWK! How about spending some time building up a credible introduction?
You will be stunned by the brilliant dialogue. "Who are you?" "I`m Bree." `nuff said
"I hope you are not lactose intolerant." (REALLY?? We are expected to believe that this is what you would be asking someone who has just risen from a grave claiming to have been buried 150 years ago??)
Here`s how we learn about Bree.
** No one would make her leave again, not even a demon.
** Had Bree kissed a married man? Let him rub his naked body against her? Was he a man? Did demons marry? (STICK A PIN IN MY EYE, ALREADY!!!)
** She`d tried searching for the Connor clan, but her computer wasn`t cooperating. (Hmmmm... The computer didn`t have a search engine? The computer didn`t like the name Connor?)
** My brother, Big Biff, is coming home tomorrow. Oh, I forgot. He`s not coming until next week.
Then there is the unbelievably clever time travel joke. "Do you have a horse and carriage?" "I have a Mustang." (Apart from the obvious stupidity, we are expected to believe that a 1850`s Highlander would know the term mustang. Not likely, since it was a North American expression relating to wild horses. Seems like the Scot should have missed this pun.)
Good writers can make you suspend your disbelief. Moning is a great example. So is Gabaldon. Comparing this novel to either of the other writers is like comparing a plastic bag to a Gucci purse. It`s time to recycle this bag.
"A voice brushed her ear. `What was lies within cannot be, until time has passed with the key.'"
It's not that the book didn't come to a wonderful, climatic ending. It did. I just did not want it to end. It was action packed. It was pack with intrigue and suspense. It was packed with a whole lot of beautiful Scotsmen - wearing kilts! And, brandishing swords!
"'It lies hidden close to God, in a place where evil can't trod.' That's what it said."
This story was a wonderful romance, bred over centuries of a Scottish warrior and his mate. Their destiny, decided on by the Gods. But, love at first site, does not always take the easy path. Sometimes, it is plagued with demons and half-lings, greed and violence, and the warrior may also have to save the world a time or two before he and his mate can be joined (at least by a priest.)
""In my day, women were to be cherished and protected," Faelan said. "You can protect our backs while we fight alongside you and cherish us when we defeat the enemy," she said. Damnation. What had happened to the sane world he'd left behind where women minded hearth and home?"
Some storylines are good, but they still just hum along. If Awaken the Highland Warrior were set to music notes, it would be filled with crescendos and the clang of symbols would end the book.
If you love a good romance, and you enjoy a good battle, and if you do not mind a gargoyle or two, AND you do not mind being kept riveted to your seat - this book is for you. Click on the icon and buy it now. Don't pass Go, skip Jail, and get it now!
I did enjoy the whole what's up with the world today scenario, and when things heated up the author also managed to surprise me and that is always fun. All in all a good book with a hunky highlander warrior and the epic struggle to save mankind. I enjoyed the book and at one time I reached a point where I had to read faster and faster and did not want to stop before I reached the end.
